O has crossed over the coveted day 300 mark! Her next milestone is day 320 - once she reaches that, her baby will be considered safely full term, and can come anytime. Before 320 is considered premature. Every day that passes as we get closer to 320 is a good day.
At the end of this week, she will receive the last of her pre-foaling vaccines. Since these guys have had clean fecals and were dewormed not long ago, I won't be deworming her again until the day she foals. Other than that, she is acting the same, eating well, and being her usual self. All of this is great... normal and boring is exactly what we want.
I have all of my foaling supplies ready. All I need is to make sure I have fresh towels available! I have milk strips ready to go as well, but we don't have any fluid to test yet. Her udders have been changing, and were getting quite big, but they have gone down in the past few days.
She has REALLY gotten bigger in a month's time as well!
I do hope she holds out until March.... February in Texas is usually mild, but sometimes we still get a freeze here and there.
Interestingly: two years ago today I was writing about P being approximately 70 days away from her due date. I also wrote about P's day 303 as well! She was just as huge as O.
What do you think we will get? A colt or a filly? And what base color? It will end up grey but it will be born either chestnut or black! With my luck... I'm assuming another chestnut filly.
